For Thursday, July 8, 2004. Those with birthdays today: Your career and your community role become far more visible this year. You gain in prestige and in your work. Sometimes your commitment becomes a burden or problem. Your sense of responsibility shines the limelight on you. Others appreciate you. Be careful with the people you meet; they might not be all they seem. If you are single, you will meet people because of your high profile and caring ways. Choose from your many admirers. You will be in the mood to settle down as winter's chill comes on. If you are attached, work on a common interest and/or develop a hobby together. Aries pushes you into the spotlight.
The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
